Ab Fab's June Whitfield Dies

This was sad to read.

One of the main stars of the British sit-com, Absolutely Fabulous, passed on suddenly at the age of 93. Dame June Whitfield was well known by everyone, and her career spanned several decades. I loved her. 

Here's more. It's a nice tribute to her, with a lot more back story, and some photos. 

Canada's New Coin Celebrates When Gay Sex Was Legalized

In order to mark the 50th anniversary of  gay sex being decriminalized, Canada has designed a one dollar coin. 

So far, I don't think anyone's seen the design in public, but there are rumors about how it's going to look, and it has been approved by Justin Trudeau. 

Trudeau's father, Pierre Trudeau, was very involved in the quest to decriminalize consensual same sex activity. 

But more important, Justin Trudeau, so far, is the only person in a place of high political power to actually apologize to gay people for the things that were done to them in the past. He should get a coin, too. 

Facebook Apologizes to Franklin Graham for Banning Anti-LGBT Post

I've seen this one trending in several places.

Graham’s original post supported North Carolina’s ‘bathroom bill’ against trans people being able to use appropriate toilet facilities. While Facebook took down the post at the time, it has now been reinstated.

Here's a link. It goes into more detail, but frankly, it's typical Facebook. This sort of thing has been going on for years with Facebook.
